Berlin Airports welcome BBI decision by the Federal Constitutional Court on BBI14.03.2008
In March 2006, the Federal Administrative Court gave the final and unappealable go-ahead for Schoenefeld airport to be extended to become the new BBI airport. Construction work on the project, which is the largest infrastructure project in the Berlin and Brandenburg area, has been ongoing since September 2006. By the time the winter flight schedule 2011 comes into effect, all the air traffic in Berlin will be focused on BBI.
Dr. Rainer Schwarz: “Aviation is a growth industry with severe capacity constraints on the ground. Today’s ruling makes Berlin the only airport in Germany which will be able to double its handling capacity with the security of full court approval.”
